My favorite time in the park has got to be that half an hour or so before the sun rises. The birds are beginning to sing the sound of the water trickling out of the lake and becoming part of the river is magical. Most morning I am at the headwaters by myself as most every one else is still in bed or just waking up. Knowing what is coming in the hours ahead it is awesome to experience this by yourself or with a loved one. I thank god that I am a early morning person.
